Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Every time my wife got in the car the oil light came on. When she either stopped

or sat and idle. It was so annoying, so I finally turn up the idle on it and it seems to fix the promblem. But I think the oil pump is weak and getting ready to go out.
